The Flute, 2018-19 Binder, 21 × 29.7 cm
Luzie Meyer’s works in the summer exhibition are a preview of the children’s workshop that Meyer offers throughout the summer holiday at TROPEZ, as well as an excerpt from her project The Flute. The improvised drama in five acts deals with its own entanglement in emotions, power relations, and indoctrinated behavioral patterns within linguistic and technological contexts.
The piece was first performed at the Kunstverein Köln in 2018. Meyer appeared as narrator, along with a flutist, a prompter, and a camerawoman, all of whom were pro-tagonists of the production. Meyer forges a nuanced relationship to transparency and self-reflexivity in regard to the production process in her films and performances: she builds a myth around her productions with trailers, staged documentaries, and fictionalized archival materials. For AMOUR, Meyer created printouts with the titles Here, fake tears replace the long experience that would be required of a professional actor und You draw me. Leave you your power to draw, and I shall have no power to follow you as well as At this very moment, the narrator is trying to look out the window. The ring binder, titled The Flute, is a storyboard Meyer has created for AMOUR.
